The Peripheral
Burton has veteran's benefits, for neural damage he suffered from implants during his time in the USMC's elite Haptic Recon force. One night Burton has to go out, but there's a job he's supposed to do - a job his sister Flynne didn't know he had - beta-testing part of a new game. There's nothing to it, just work a perimeter around the image of a tower building, and when little buglike things turn up, get in their way and edge them back. He offered Flynne a good price to take over for him, but what she sees isn't what Burton told her to expect. It might be a game, but it might also be murder.
